What Is Considered a Multiple DUI Offense in California?

In California, a multiple DUI offense is any DUI that occurs within 10 years of a prior DUI conviction. This means that, if you are convicted of a DUI and then arrested for another DUI within 10 years of the first conviction, you will be charged with a multiple DUI offense.

It is important to note that, in California, a prior DUI conviction can be used to enhance the penalties for a subsequent DUI offense for up to 10 years. After 10 years, the prior DUI conviction will no longer be considered when determining the penalties for a subsequent DUI.

What Are the Penalties for Multiple DUIs in California?

California has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country. The state takes a strong stance against drunk driving and is known for imposing harsh penalties on those who are convicted of DUIs, especially repeat offenders.

The penalties for a multiple DUI conviction in California include:

  • Second DUI: A second DUI conviction within 10 years of the first conviction is punishable by up to 1 year in county jail, up to $2,800 in fines, a 2-year driver’s license suspension, and mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle.
  • Third DUI: A third DUI conviction within 10 years of the first conviction is punishable by up to 1 year in county jail, up to $2,800 in fines, a 3-year driver’s license suspension, mandatory installation of an IID in your vehicle, and mandatory completion of a 30-month DUI education program.
  • Fourth DUI: A fourth DUI conviction within 10 years of the first conviction is punishable by up to 3 years in state prison, up to $18,000 in fines, a 4-year driver’s license suspension, mandatory installation of an IID in your vehicle, and mandatory completion of a 30-month DUI education program.
  • Fifth DUI: A fifth DUI conviction within 10 years of the first conviction is punishable by up to 3 years in state prison, up to $18,000 in fines, a 5-year driver’s license suspension, mandatory installation of an IID in your vehicle, and mandatory completion of a 30-month DUI education program.
  • Sixth DUI: A sixth DUI conviction within 10 years of the first conviction is punishable by up to 3 years in state prison, up to $18,000 in fines, a 5-year driver’s license suspension, mandatory installation of an IID in your vehicle, and mandatory completion of a 30-month DUI education program.

In addition to these penalties, a multiple DUI conviction can have a significant impact on your personal and professional life. You may lose your job, have difficulty finding new employment, and face strained relationships with family and friends. You may also be required to install an IID in your vehicle, which can be expensive and embarrassing.
